ios 10 beta 3

Apple on Monday seeded the third beta of iOS 10 (build “14A5309d”) to developers. The release, which comes roughly two weeks after beta 2, is available to all registered iOS developers through Apple’s dev center.

Beta 2 brought about several, though not necessarily significant, changes including a new Rest Finger to Unlock option, and enhancements to Notification Center, Messages and the stock Music app.

Introduced in June, iOS 10 offers a number of new features and improvements. It’s compatible with the iPad 4 and later, the iPad mini 2 and later, the iPhone 5 and later, and the 6th gen iPod touch.

We are currently installing today’s beta, and will be sure to report back with any notable changes. If you spot something we’ve missed, leave a comment below or email us at tips@idownloadblog.com.

  • Old Man Pickle

    Installed and it’s a lot smoother (for me). The Rest Finger to Open option is working and it’s great. Everything just seems smoother and no janky animations AND the keyboard click sound from Beta One is back.

    • also there’s new lock sound

      • Old Man Pickle

        Much nicer than the old one. Goes better with the keyboard click.

      • VITICO

        noticed that..wonder if that was done on purpose..

      • Charyman

        yeah

    • Charyman

      i think that is new because i also spotted it

  • Michael Gargett

    Anyone else’s ‘For You’ section in the music completely broken?

    • Old Man Pickle

      Took a good few minutes to load anything but it’s seems fine now.

      • Michael Gargett

        I’ll leave it a little while, i’m just getting a load of connect posts…

    • Chris Wagers

      Blank for 2-3 seconds but then loads and is working fine.

    • Charyman

      nope, it works perfectly fine

      • Michael Gargett

        Hmmm, must just be mine… 🙁

  • Pieter Stephenson

    another website said that there are iOS 10, watchOS, and macOS Sierra Beta 3. I received iOS and watchOS Beta 3. But not for macOS Sierra Beta 3. Why? Anyone suffer this?

    • [RECON1]

      I thought that a little weird as well.

      • Pieter Stephenson

        do you have a mac?I downgraded to Beta 1 and still seeing only Beta 2 updates.

      • [RECON1]

        Yes, I have a Mac.

  • Chris Wagers

    Notification Center animation from home screen a little different?

  • Jimmy Shadow

    notification center pull down animation is changed!

  • Johnny Iturralde

    Lock sound has changed as well. Its a quick click.

  • Omar D. Plumey

    Is beta 3 good enough to use as a daily driver?

    • Alex-V

      Yes for sure..it also brings the back the smoothness

      • Omar D. Plumey

        Any noticeable bugs off the bat?

      • Alex-V

        Nothing noteable till now..for sure..still some third Party Apps Not working..some got allready the iOS 10 update..silent as bugfix

        So yes the dev Beta 3 is good enough for me as a Daily driver

  • Gabriel Anaya

    When in apps and pulling down the Notification Center, the notifications have a new fade in kind of animation. Notifications that have been interacted with and then dismissed also have a new animation.

  • Any of you having problems with emoji prediction?? Dont have since beta 2!

  • [RECON1]

    Looks like the Home page icons at the bottom are bigger than the Widget one, now. Lockscreen and Camera icons seems bigger too

  • Omar D. Plumey

    Anybody know when the public release of beta 3 will be available?
